Rosewater Lemonade

You will love this rosewater lemonade drink recipe. So fragrant and refreshing just sipping a glass on the rocks.  Rosewater is used in Persian, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine; it is employed in sweet and savory dishes alike. Kheer-an Indian rice pudding wouldn’t be the same without rosewater. Rosewater is also added to tea, ice cream and cookies.
